Reverse the aging process

Dr. Dana King and his team of researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina have just completed a very inspirational study.  Dr. King and his team set out to find if middle-aged adults could reap the rewards of habits like eating vegetables and walking 30 minutes a day.

The researchers reported in June 2007 that middle-aged adults age 45 to 64 who began eating five or more fruits and vegetables every day, exercising for at least 2 1/2 hours a week, keeping weight down and not smoking decreased their risk of heart disease by 35 percent and risk of death by 40 percent in the four years after they started.

“The adopters of a healthy lifestyle basically caught up. Within four years, their mortality rate and rate of heart attacks matched the people who had been doing these behaviors all along,” said Dr. Dana King at the Medical University of South Carolina, who led the research.  Dr. King added “even if you have not had a healthy lifestyle previously, it’s not too late to adopt those healthy lifestyle habits and gain almost immediate benefits.”

The four key habits are eating five or more servings of fruits and vegetables everyday, exercising for 2 ½ hours per week, not smoking and maintaining a healthy weight. The study participants who adopted all four healthy habits enjoyed a sharp decline in heart disease risk and in death from any cause.

It took all four — having just three of the healthy habits yielded no heart benefits and a more modest decrease in overall risk of death. Still, said Dr. Nichola Davis at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, “These benefits are on a continuum. The more of the healthy habits that you can adapt, the better. …These are modest changes that they’re talking about.”

Gambling with your health

I’m not much of a gambler, but when I do place a bet I ussually plan on winning that bet, thou most of the time the odds are stacked against me.

Giving another person or company money just in case something bad happens to you is gambling.

ALL 3rd party payer systems, private insurance or government programs are the house, the odds are stacked in their favor.  They take your bet because they expect to keep your money.

You place your bet, only the house gets to set the odds and the anti (premium).

While making monthly installments on your bet, you go about your merry way hoping you never win that bet.

Only, deep down inside something is saying, “Dang, I sure am investing a lot of my hard earned money into this bet.  Too bad I can’t come up with some way to win that bet, without getting too sick, of course.”

You never say it out loud, but you know others are thinking the same thing by what they say and how some of them display thier winnings (illnesses) with pride.

Stop gambling with your health, take a responsible role in the upkeep of your body.  If you have questions, please comment on this blog, or set an appointment.  I now have a 30 day intensive fountain youth program. The first few people that have gone through it (including me) have made miraculous progress in recovering the energy and spirit of our youth.

Fasting strongly increases a cells resistence to stress

In a study, published in the March 31 2008 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers studied the effects of starvation on cancerous and normal cells. First, they induced a starvation-related response in yeast cells, which made them 1,000 times more protected than untreated cells.

Then, they tested the effects of fasting on human and cancer cells in a test tube and in mice. The results showed starvation produced between a twofold and fivefold difference in stress resistance between the normal, starvation-treated cells and normal cells. In tests with live mice, of 28 mice starved for 48-60 hours before chemotherapy, only 1 died (less than 4%). Of 37 mice that were not starved prior to treatment, 20 mice died from chemotherapy toxicity (over 50%).

This is another study clearly demonstrating the fact that “the less you eat, the longer you live.”  Any natural approach to recover from cancerous tumors must begin with a fasting and detox routine.  Then only put good stuff in.  Cancer cells love corn syrup.

Aging is a Choice

Rage Against the Dying of the Light:

  • The sooner in life you begin “staying young” the more effective the effort is.  After the age of 40 your lifestyle choices add up quickly.  The longer you wait to begin an anti-aging lifestyle the more difficult (but not impossible!) it becomes to acheive the  desired improvements. It’s easier to keep what you have than to try to get back what’s been lost.
  • Educate yourself about all aspects of an anti-aging diet and lifestyle.  Flexibility in mind and body is important. Use your traditionally trained doctor’s wisdom as suggestions only. He or she is very well trained to treat diseases, but has very little education about how to stay healthy and young.  These are two entirely different subjects.
  • Don’t expect your health insurance to be of any help.  They are in the crisis management business and are not interested in investing in your good health.
  • Be aware of your thinking and speech. Negative self-talk about your age, mental or physical condition is not cute or funny but damaging. Avoid saying, “I must be getting old,” when you forget something. Don’t ever admit to having a “senior moment.” (Young people forget things all the time and they don’t blame memory lapses on having a “junior moment.”) If you are getting the right nutrition and exercising your brain with productive, challenging work or projects, you shouldn’t experience “senior moments.”
  • Engage in some kind of physical exercise daily. As little as 20 minutes each day will make an amazing difference in how you feel and look. 
  • Be responsible for how you look and feel.  Don’t “live with it”.  If your body is in pain, investigate it.  Find the cause, and correct it.
  • “The very worse course of action is to do nothing. Most people do nothing – they just let life happen, and as a result, life does happen with the usual signs and symptoms of decline. If you assume there is nothing one can do to control the aging process, that’s when the aging game is lost,” says Morris. “As long as you live and breathe, positive change and improvement is always possible.”
